Okay, we’re way overdue for an update, so first the important points:

  • Go Play NW 2014, as previously announced, is happening Friday June 27 to Sunday June 29 at Seattle University.
  • Registration opens real soon now—probably this coming Monday, March 17.
  • We’ll have new spaces for gaming this year, but will not have the ballroom of Campion Tower.
  • We will still have overnight rooms available for the weekend in Campion Tower.
  • Prices should be staying about the same as last year; we’re finalizing the details now.
  • We may have to cap attendance this year due to the change in event space, so registering early is to your advantage.

Here’s what’s been happening.
At the end of January, Seattle University surprised us with the news that due to a scheduling conflict, the ballroom of Campion Tower would not be available to us on the weekend they had already confirmed as our dates for this year—nor was it available on the previous June weekend or the next few weekends in July. However, the university’s Casey Building, with its assortment of conference rooms, was available for our use, and after checking out the spaces, we agreed the best plan was to proceed with our announced weekend and use the Casey rooms.
The Casey rooms include a large commons room as our main gaming space for multiple groups, a couple mid-size conference rooms that can hold a few groups apiece, three boardroom-style meeting rooms that will seat up to 10 people around a single large table, and an atrium for casual seating in comfy chairs (like the lobby of Campion Tower). We’re confident that the spacing of the rooms and variety of options will provide as great an experience as we’ve had in the past couple years at Seattle University.
As mentioned, we’re still working on finalizing some details, but we’ll be opening registration as soon as possible. We’re all really excited for this year’s event and looking forward to seeing everyone this June!

Is it that time already? Yes indeed, it may be only the start of November, but we know that people are already looking at their calendars for next year, scheduling vacations with work and whatnot. So we’re excited to be able to tell you now that yes, we will be returning to Campion Hall at Seattle University for Go Play NW 2014 on the weekend of Friday June 27 to Sunday June 29.
If you’ve been to Go Play NW in the past couple years, you know what a great space Campion Hall provides for us. If you haven’t been before or just haven’t made it in the last couple years, you might take a look at last year’s photos in our Flickr group or  see what people posted to our Google+ community. In short: a spacious ballroom that never feels too noisy, cozy spaces in the lobby, the 12th floor dorm lounge and private study rooms with fantastic views of Seattle, and even an outdoor garden deck. Overnight accommodations will be available right in Campion Hall, and this year we plan to include a three-night stayover—Friday through Sunday, checking out on Monday morning—as an official registration option.
Not much else to say right now, other than that we’ll be announcing registration details early in 2014. So mark your calendars, we look forward to seeing all of you on Friday June 27, 2014!
